Multiple grade I winner Caleb's Posse (Posse --Abbey's Missy, by Slewacide) was represented by his first two reported foals.
The first is a filly born Jan. 28 out of Dontstealmythunder (Thunder Gulch--Meadow Vista, by Meadowlake), and the second a colt born Jan. 30 out of Numero d'Oro (Medaglia d'Oro --Numero Uno, by Afleet).
Best known for his powerful stretch runs in winning the Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile (gr. I), Foxwoods King's Bishop (gr. I), and Amsterdam (gr. II), Caleb's Posse posted the highest Beyer figures for any colt on dirt at a mile (115) and at seven furlongs (109) in 2012. His Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile win was the second fastest in the race's history, and his King's Bishop victory was the fastest in the last nine runnings of the race.
Multiple winner Dontstealmythunder was a winner at both the maiden special weight and allowance levels. She is the dam of five other foals, with four to race including three winners.
"This filly is very correct, very balanced," said farm owner Elaine Peck. "She's got a great body. I'm very pleased with her."
Unraced Numero d'Oro produced a healthy colt at Candy Meadows Farm in Kentucky.
"He's a pretty nice colt with a short back, nice depth through his shoulder, and is athletic-looking with some nice scope to his legs," said Candy Meadows manager Brendan Lewis.
Bred by Don McNeill and raced in partnership by McNeill and Everett Dobson's Cheyenne Stables, Caleb's Posse raced three seasons, hitting the board in 16 of his 19 starts including 13 stakes races. He earned more than $1.4 million.
Caleb's Posse will stand his second season at Three Chimneys in 2014 for an advertised fee of $5,000.
